discrimination for the rest of their lives. in fact in some cities like chicago, baltimore, philadelphia, d.c., the list could go on in some cities the statistics are far worse. in fact was reported in chicago that if you take into account prisoners, if you count prisoners as people coming in to keep in mind prisoners are excluded from poverty statistics and unemployment data that is masking the severity of racial inequality in the united states but to actually count the prisoners as people in the chicago area, 80% of the working age african-american men, all records are the subject to legalized discrimination for the rest of their lives. these men are part of the underpass, a group of people defined largely by race, relegated to a permanent second-class status by law. i find today when i tell people that i believe that mass incarceration is like the new jim-crow people react with a complete disbelief. they say how can you say that? our criminal justice system isn't of racial control, it isn't crime control and black folks would stop running around committing so many crimes

all. when he came to the atlanta constitution. the first president was city editor of the atlanta journal, they counted competition, and everyone in georgia came to know jack nelson as one of the most incisive and aggravating reporters who ever lived. i can say all the epithet's i heard described, one was his and. that has a connotation that is always burrowing in where they ought not to be. they should not be exposed to different people. jack would do that and was incredible success and sometimes under unbelievable danger. the first time he came to georgia he was inducted, went into the national guard, inducted to go to the korean war. he went to fort stewart, georgia and became a staff sergeant. if you read the book you find out he never learned how to shoot a rifle, never had any basic training at all, he was promoted above the other people who came with him from biloxi to the army and did that because he was a reporter and expert at publicizing his commanding officer's great exploits. he did this by becoming friends with all the editors of newspapers up and down the coast from
